Organizational Strengthening & Capacity Building

The Down East Partnership for Children (DEPC) of Nash and Edgecombe Counties is a non-profit organization located in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Since evidence-based programs and evidence-informed practices began to emerge in the early childhood field, DEPC has upheld that they must be implemented as part of the continuum of services that makes up the early childhood system. Program development, evaluation, and community outreach are part of the underlying foundation of that system that enables a community to effectively evaluate and implement effective, evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies. DEPC will work with the NIRN to review the literature related to these key functions and then compare the findings from the literature with the practices at DEPC. DEPC intends to share the findings from this work with other Smart Start partnerships within North Carolina.
